School Information

Hey everyone!

In an effort to be proactive, the fourth grade teachers wanted to ensure that your student has a quality education in the event that we are required to learn from home. We have several resources that are provided digitally and some packets for students with limited technology at home. All students will be coming home with their math workbooks today, just in case. These assignments do NOT need to be completed yet, but only in the event of a sudden school closure—we want to be prepared ahead of time for an extended amount of time being out. The teachers will reach out in this event to give specific directions on which assignments should be completed.

 

Below is a list of online resources for students to use:

-USA Test Prep (login in student agenda)

-Prodigy (login in student agenda)

-Freckle (Login through Clever, student #)

-Typing Club (Login through Clever, student #)

Please monitor the Cobb County website for immediate updates. Please reach out to your child’s teacher for specific directions as well.
